Optimizing Algorithms in Applesoft BASIC
Recent experiments with fractal algorithms in pure Applesoft BASIC have revealed methods for optimizing code to achieve acceptable speeds on a 4Mhz IIc Plus. In this session, Wayne Arthurton demonstrates the effects of using and optimizing user-defined functions, vari able reuse, variable allocation order, and other techniques for improving BASIC calculation performance.
